Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of “seeing” inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The sound waves are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No radiation is involved in ultrasound imaging.
Ultrasound is a useful way of examining many of the body’s internal organs, including the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, and bladder. Ultrasound is also the preferred method used to visualize an unborn fetus.
You and your doctor can count on 24-hour week day coverage and 7am to 7pm weekend coverage.
